Sometimes it’s hard for me to make a list of my “favorite film” because I love film so much. I have tons of favorites and it’s really not fair to narrow them down into a top 10 or top 9, let alone top 5. It’s just cruel. But, I’ll make an exception this time. I made this list as a request from one of my followers and I also wanted you guys to know some of my favorite film that have left a huge impression and completely wowed me over the years. Here’s my list in random order:
2001: A Space Odyssey (1968) | Director: Stanley Kubrick
I personally think that every single Stanley Kubrick film have totally wowed me. Literally every single one of them. But my ultimate favorite is “2001: A Space Odyssey”. It’s one of the most visually stunning film I’ve ever seen. Also one of the most multi-layered and greatest film ever made. Kubrick once said this film was intended to be experienced more than to be understood. This film was pure art. In order to enjoy this film, you must let your imagination runs freely.
Jurassic Park (1993) | Director: Steven Spielberg
I saw this film at a very young age. I didn’t even know that there’s a thing called special effects. I thought the dinosaurs were real. I was really freaked out. But when my parents told me they were not real, I was totally blown away. I mean, how the hell did they even do that? It’s incredible how realistic the effects look. This film was a roller coaster ride. It almost felt like I was in an adventure with the cast. Spielberg was certainly the ideal director for this kind of film.
The Sound of Music (1965) | Director: Robert Wise
My mom showed me this film when I was also at a very young age. She said it’s one of her favorite film and she wanted to share that with me. I was completely in love with this film from the first moment Julie Andrews spread her arms and sang, “The hills are alive… with the sound of music.” It was beyond this world. “The Sound of Music” was a big part of my childhood and watching this film was one of the best experience I had my entire life. A timeless classic.
